WATCH: House Dem Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries Calls Trump ‘The Grand Wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue’
Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D- NY) blasted President Donald Trump during a speech on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday.
Jeffries spoke at the National Action Network event about the lessons from Dr. King that still resonate today.
At one point he told the audience, “We have a hater in the White House. Birther-in-Chief. The Grand Wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. One of the things we’ve learned is that while Jim Crow may be dead he’s still got some nieces and nephews that are alive and well.”
He also railed against Trump’s border wall and said they’re not giving him a dime for it.
Jeffries called POTUS a “racial arsonist” after his Charlottesville response and has used similar language to today’s to blast him in the past year:
Grand Wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. has once again ripped the sheets off and exposed himself to the American People. What a DISGRACE https://t.co/FNpulOAL6u
